Becoming: Libby VanderPloeg

If you’re just joining in, for the month of January we were inspired to change up our content for the month to focus on women who we find inspiring and can tell us about their journey of “becoming” based on our Book Club book of the month by Michelle Obama. You can read the rest of the interviews here with Grace Bonney here. Stay tuned for many more!

I’m a huge fan of the work of illustrator, Libby VanderPloeg. Her work is addresses current issues imbibed with a fresh, whimsical, and humorous touch. We’ve been the lucky host of a few collaborations now with our Lars Book Club printable art prints, but you can find her work from products at Anthropologie, to book covers, and magazines around the globe. You can even take her class on Skillshare, which is actually on my bucket list this year! We’re so thrilled to learn more about her in our latest interview.

Top 10 posts of 2017

Top ten posts of 2017Last year at this time we were just about to start photographing our new book (out this year!) and life was CHAOTIC! The book had been something we had been planning for a number of months, years really, but even with planning, the load was much more intense than any of us could have been prepared for. And though the actual shoot was only two weeks (and many of those round the clock), it dipped into our February and March and April and…let’s just call it a very involved project. And then for some crazy reason we decided to take on another book project later in the year, which mostly finished up while I was on my trip to France in October, but is yes, still going on 😉 This is all to say that the tone of 2016 was set with chaos and it took awhile for me to get in the normal swing of things. Whatever normal means.  Read on →

20 Calendars to Kick off 2018

2018 calendar round upOne of my favorite things about the new year is the need to buy a new calendar! I like to have a wall calendar above my desk at home and a desk calendar for work. Not only does this help me keep track of the day today, but it is also a perfect way to add a little pop of art into your life. All the more reason to make sure you buy a lovely calendar! We’ve scavenged the internet to find a handful of beautiful calendars to kick off 2018, all Lars approved. It’s the perfect thing to start the new year off on the right foot. Did we mention they make great gifts? Everyone needs a calendar!

Take a peek at the full list below!
